Well, I lost a little bit of motivation to play so I've been playing parts of songs that I know and have been writing riffs recently that I would love to turn into songs.  I've been listening to Slash's Snakepit, the second album, and I love it.  If it ever works on my computer (because it's a library copy ) I'll copy it to my computer so I can figure out the songs on the CD.  I'll be a good challenge because the rhythm guitar is much harder than I thought so it'll be worth trying.  But the rhythm guitar parts I like are in the songs Been there lately, Just Anything and Mean Bone.  I also like the ballad Back to the Momment.  Nice good hard rockin blues.  I can't stop listening to it.

Two of the most beautiful guitar songs the world has heard:

- Pink Floyd: Comfortably Numb
- Pink Floyd: Wish You Were Here.

Other than that, I'm practicing speed by doing scales, scales, scales and .... scales and also some picking exercises to get the pick and hands on my team :)
- Charlotte: Gibson Les Paul Classic Antique Vintage Sunburst Ltd Ed, Guitar of the week 33, 2007 (337 of 400)
- Olivia: Gibson SG Special Faded
- Victoria: Epiphone SG Limited Edition.
- Hedda: Art & Lutherie Cedar Antique Sunbur

I just got A Modern Method For Guitar Book 1 by William Leavitt.  I'm going to use it to read music (without the tab beneath the notes) so that way I'll be more prepared for other types of gigs than just 'listen and copy what you hear' which I don't do well at.  I've got alot to work on.

It's good Slash to be able to read musical notation and I'm sure you know that!  It really make use of your brain cells.  Good for you. 

P.S. I got me a new amp Slash.  I will pm you!

I'm just picking up the guitar, practicing pentatonic scales etc. on a friend's guitar currently, I won't have my own for another week at least. I was thinking about making a short video every week after my guitar arrives and posting it on youtube - it would be a good way to monitor my progress and motivate myself to become a good guitarist, and maybe (hopefully) show other people that it's doable.

Singer for my new band got it into his head that the Mosquito song by Queens of the Stone Age was a cool thing to do as an encore...
Which sucks, because even though it's just 4 chords (Am, C, E and D shapes) and an Am shape-based riff...
Playing the damn tune on a 12 string acoustic tuned to C# is a real mother******.
Someone should shoot Josh Homme for writing the damn thing, eventhough it's an excellent tune.

Okay I have to ask:

How the heck do you tune a 12 string acoustic to C#? 

I have some experience in playing a 12 string acoustic and never deviated from the standard tuning for the main strings and then having to look up how the harmony strings needed to be tuned.  So it's a little confusing to me how someone manages to tune a 12 string to C#.
